Here’s everything you can play on Playstation VR on day one

Playstation VR is out now. Sorta. For some people. Whether you have your coveted pre-order in place, or were able to snag one off of an actual shelf at midnight, it may already be in your grasp. But if you missed out on this launch run, you’re out of luck for awhile until Sony decides to restock, due to the hardware’s inevitably limited supply.

Tracking problems have persisted through pre-release press coverage

Regardless of stocking issues—not an anomaly for VR by any means—out of all of this year’s lackluster VR line-ups, PSVR’s shows the most promise. From mecha-piloting football to a reimagined cult classic, PSVR has something for everyone. With a lower price point than its PC-bound competitors, PSVR seems poised for success. That is, if the tracking problems persisting through pre-release impressions don’t make everyone vomit themselves to death first.

I’ll be getting my PSVR tomorrow today with the rest of the world, being the plebeian reporter I am. (Don’t worry, I have a lot of cup noodles in my pantry to feed me this month.) Starting the moment I have the headset in my sweaty palms, I’ll be writing game and “experience” impressions for you, dear readers. Maybe I’ll make a Japanese PSN account to give tutoring a cute girl in Summer Lesson a try, and even break out the glowsticks—I mean, Move controllers for the wotagei simulator, Idolm@ster: Viewing Revolution. So join me, as I cozy up in this cyber hell, not knowing when I’ll next see sunlight.

Gear up, and welcome to my Very Chill Reality.
